Education 16+

Purpose / Overview

RIISE together with Elite Community Trust’s Football and Education programme is a county wide programme providing full-time post 16 education to male and female learners across South Yorkshire, working alongside our education partners to deliver excellence in our academic and football provision.

Learners will study at one of our three venues:

Hall Cross Academy

Doncaster College

High Melton College


Through our partnerships with a variety of education providers across the county, this offers us the opportunity to offer learners the option to study A Levels as well as Level 3 and Level 2 sport qualifications as well as undertaking GCSE resits should a learner need to do so.

The full time education programme is complimented with a full time football offer with learners playing in one of our Elite Academy teams, competing in the ACA colleges Championship and National Football Youth League where they play weekly fixtures as well as training three times a week with our professional Academy coaches.


Our coaches qualifications range from UEFA B, UEFA A and UEFA Pro Licence allowing us to offer the very best football coaching, working to a planned syllabus across specific topics relevant to the game. Each learner also receives three reviews a year on their football development.

In addition to this, using our four Veo cameras, this allows us to film all of our games giving our learners footage that can be used for coaching purposes as well as creating individual video packages to send to academies and universities in the USA.
